Innes overseas growth at Bield
With more than 20 years’ experience in the public and private sector, Ms Innes will oversee the company’s growing portfolio of property developments in Edinburgh and St Andrews as well as identifying opportunities for growth.
She returns to Scotland after seven and a half years as development and regeneration manager at Four Housing in North East England.
She said: “I’m delighted to be making the move to Bield, particularly at such a pivotal time for the organisation.
“I hope to bring a fresh eye to the fantastic work already being done and see if we can consolidate and improve on the great position we are in, in terms of our provision of housing options for older people, care services and the standing of the organisation.”
A native of East Lothian, Ms Innes grew up in Haddington and studied in Edinburgh.
“Over the next five years, there is a real opportunity for developing Registered Social Landlords in Scotland with the committed grant support from the Scottish Government, and Bield can play a key partnering role to deliver much needed homes for older people throughout Scotland,” she said.
Brian Logan, Bield’s chief executive, said: “Appointing someone of Caryn’s calibre to such a key position is excellent news for Bield.”
